Pray for One Another

Posted: 4th January 2011 by Marshall Mabry in Praise and Worship

Praying for one another is a vital ingrediant to our Lord’s Great Commandment. In the book of Job, God tells us that this is essential to our restoration in Him. You could be struggling with you health, finances, courage, or faith. Fervently praying for someone else who is struggling (maybe with the same obstacles) is obeying Christ’s commandment. That’s worship!

God tells us in Job’s story that this led to restoration and forgiveness.

Job 42:7-10
After the LORD had said these things to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite, “I am angry with you and your two friends, because you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has. So now take seven bulls and seven rams and go to my servant Job and sacrifice a burnt offering for yourselves. My servant Job will pray for you, and I will accept his prayer and not deal with you according to your folly. You have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has.” So Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite did what the LORD told them; and the LORD accepted Job’s prayer. After Job had prayed for his friends, the LORD made him prosperous again and gave him twice as much as he had before.

Jesus said “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us…” Praying for one another is vital to our spiritual journey to grow and get closer to one another and Christ.
